Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Soil water, Ecology, Agronomy, Denitrification and Water content are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nitrous oxide, Forest ecology, Ecosystem and Atmospheric sciences. His Nitrous oxide study incorporates themes from Steppe, Carbon dioxide and Greenhouse gas.

The concepts of his Agronomy study are interwoven with issues in Beech, Agriculture and Temperate climate. His Denitrification research includes themes of Nitrification, Terrestrial ecosystem, Nitrogen cycle, Environmental chemistry and Nitrate. In his research on the topic of Water content, Dry season and Litter is strongly related with Wet season.

His most cited work include:

  • Nitrous oxide emissions from soils: how well do we understand the processes and their controls? (1122 citations)
  • The global nitrogen cycle in the twenty-first century (706 citations)
  • METHODS FOR MEASURING DENITRIFICATION: DIVERSE APPROACHES TO A DIFFICULT PROBLEM (656 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Soil water, Greenhouse gas, Agronomy, Atmospheric sciences and Nitrous oxide. His Soil water research incorporates elements of Nitrification, Ecosystem, Water content, Environmental chemistry and Denitrification. Klaus Butterbach-Bahl interconnects Reactive nitrogen and Nitrate in the investigation of issues within Denitrification.

Klaus Butterbach-Bahl combines subjects such as Agroforestry, Environmental engineering, Agriculture, Climate change and Livestock with his study of Greenhouse gas. The various areas that he examines in his Agronomy study include Soil carbon and Leaching. His Nitrous oxide study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carbon dioxide, Methane and Grassland.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (43.13%)
  • Greenhouse gas (40.39%)
  • Agronomy (37.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Greenhouse gas (40.39%)
  • Soil water (43.13%)
  • Agronomy (37.00%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Klaus Butterbach-Bahl spends much of his time researching Greenhouse gas, Soil water, Agronomy, Nitrous oxide and Atmospheric sciences. His Greenhouse gas research includes elements of Environmental protection, Agriculture, Climate change, Livestock and Methane. His Soil water study combines topics in areas such as Environmental chemistry, Nitrification and Water content.

Ecology is closely connected to Nitrogen cycle in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Nitrification. His work focuses on many connections between Agronomy and other disciplines, such as Leaching, that overlap with his field of interest in Irrigation. His study in Atmospheric sciences is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Reactive nitrogen and Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Terrestrial ecosystem.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trade-offs between soil carbon sequestration and reactive nitrogen losses under straw return in global agroecosystems (55 citations)
  • Nitrogen-rich organic soils under warm well-drained conditions are global nitrous oxide emission hotspots. (48 citations)
  • Drip fertigation significantly reduces nitrogen leaching in solar greenhouse vegetable production system (35 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of investigation include Greenhouse gas, Agronomy, Soil water, Nitrous oxide and Leaching. His studies deal with areas such as Irrigation, Agriculture, Livestock, Methane and Ozone depletion as well as Greenhouse gas. His work carried out in the field of Agronomy brings together such families of science as Denitrification and Catch crop.

His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Wetland and Water content. His studies in Nitrous oxide integrate themes in fields like Field experiment, Fertilizer, Atmospheric sciences, Grassland and Paddy field. His Leaching research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cycling, Shrubland, Litter and Nitrogen balance.
